Bristol Motor Speedway 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour 95 Impala SS
Charity event to drive 5 laps on the Speedway at the end of the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour. We were in groups of 10 cars. I was lucky to be behind the pace car. Wife was taking the video. This is the first time she has been on a track. She was really scared. Car driven is a 1995 ImpalaSS. Open the Exhaust cut-outs to get the "NASCAR" sound.
Commentary by wife....priceless.

Should be better now. Josh had it all up and running again in a week! Has more jam at bottom end than the 5.3 he reports.
